A Black-winged stilt has been seen on East Fen which is only the 4th record for Berks and the first since 1945. For the non-birders, it is quite distinctive with tremendously long legs

East fen is best accessed from the Lower Sandhurst road car park by walking south on the bridleway (not footpath) and it is the first area of water on the right (to west). View only from the bridleway.
